Free the Children has been helping others since 1995, when eleven teenagers set out to fight child labor. Since then, the foundation has flourished into a major international organization, having worked in over 45 countries, built more than 650 schoolhouses, and provided over a million people with clean water and sanitation facilities. Free the Children has had an amazingly positive impact due to their sustainable system of aid.
The Northshore Futsal Cup benefits Free the Children’s water and sanitation work in Haiti. In 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the impoverished nation of Haiti, killing over 100,000 Haitians. The nation already had a weak government and a population base that was barely surviving. Since the earthquake, Haiti has become the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere: 54% of people live on less than $1 per day and 70% have no access to clean water.
The money raised from the Northshore Futsal Cup will help build a well and a sanitary outhouse for a desperate community in Haiti. While some aid efforts come and go, this well will be serving a gracious village for many years to come.
100% of proceeds of the Northshore Futsal Cup will go to Free the Children’s water and sanitation efforts in Haiti. To learn more about their work, please visit their website: freethechildren.com
